It's time again to meet with all the community members in and around Belgium. This year it will be on Saturday April 28th and the location will be in Antwerp. We're also changing the approach, before we open it for registration and make the agenda public, we're starting a "Call for Speakers". As this is a community event, we need you to help us filling the agenda. You can share knowledge, experience or just start a discussion.


    • What

The event is fully organized by peers from the community.. and YOU are able to influence the agenda.

      Have a look at all the review blogs of previous SAPInsideTracks 2015 to get into the right mood.. and register yourself afterwards.

Session suggestion

As this is a community event, we need you to help us for filling the agenda.
Share your experience and/or initiate a discussion and take new insights back home. Please let us know how much time you need for your session. You can register sessions of 30, 40 or 50 minutes. If your session is shorter, you don't need to blow it up, please feel free to add it. If your session will need some more time, add your session and mention it.  We will figure out if and how we can handle it. 

Please plan some time for questions and answers - or even asking the audience for feedback and ideas. The " In " of INside Track comes from INteraction (wink)

Identity on Blockchain: managing your privacyJo VercammenJURUJuru is an online identity ecosystem built on Blockchain that puts the user in full control of his personal data. Juru allows you to securely and privately store your data, and share attributes of your identity (e.g. name, email, insurance number or net income) selectively with people and businesses. We're uniquely positioned as a hybrid Identity Platform between traditional solutions and full self-sovereign platforms, where individuals can create their own attributes by posing a claim. All of these claims can be attested by (KYC) services, so that other services can safely assume the data they get is correct. At the same time we're solving the GDPR compliance burden for SMEs: by managing consent and data in a user-centric approach.

SAP IQ - Business Intelligence and vertical data processing with 8 GB RAM or lessVolker Stöfflerindependent consultant
SAP IQ is a HANA companion for Smart Data Access / Integration and SAP BW NLS, to keep data way beyond memory limits accessible. But it also is a full-blown data warehouse system of its own, with column oriented data storage and powerful analytics capabilities. It can scale up to the world's largest data warehouse [] and down to desktop or notebook computers. This session is intended to show the benefits and capabilities of the vertical data structures used inside and their impact on high performance processing and parallel execution of Business Intelligence style queries.

How to visualize Query Semantics using Open Source GraphvizVolker Stöfflerindependent consultant
When analyzing the performance of complex queries, you may find yourself with multi table joins, e.g. generated by a BI system, coded by an out-of-reach developer or evolved through a long life cycle. A semantic query graph visualizes the topology of such a join and helps to understand the options the optimizer has at hand for an execution plan. The graph unveils possible shortcuts or extensions you can provide to enhance query performance by providing additional options to the query optimizer

I will demonstrate how to use the Open Source utility Graphviz [] for visualization.

This presentation is based upon ANSI Standard SQL and not restricted to a specific RDBMS implementation. The method is a generic approach to deal with the challenge of understanding and possibly enhancing the topology of a multi table join query.
SQL Anywhere - your flight mode database serverVolker Stöfflerindependent consultant
This is a live and interactive version of my SCN blog [] with the same title. It's an introduction to the capabilities and characteristics of SAP SQL Anywhere, a standard compliant and full feature (including OLAP SQL) database server running on lightweight hardware (starting with Raspberry Pi) and workplace computers to server machines (workgroups, small enterprises), supplemented by a deployment option for embedded systems like smart sensors for IoT scenarios.
